The speeding car crushed the sheep late on Thursday night when the herd was moving on the Abdullah Bridge. "We have detained the driver of the car and a complaint has been registered," Srinagar police said.
To avoid damage due to traffic rush on the highways, the shepherds prefer to travel with their flock during the night hours.
